Company Leadership

Alan L. Mullen, CTI’s President, CEO, and founder, graduated from Cornell University and was a TOPGUN pilot in the Navy. He has over 30 years of experience providing training to both commercial and military aviation. His motivation for founding CTI was to demonstrate the power of a total commitment to quality. Having experienced both very high and very average training in the course of his long aviation career, he became convinced that top quality training must not only be the most effective but, ultimately, the best value. Everything from efficiency and customer satisfaction to employee morale and retention accrues to the organization that embraces a total quality approach.
